    Okay, I have a question about forwarding Port 80 TCP.

    I successfully forwarded port 80 to my IP Address, but I'm not sure whether this IP has to be the one in your computer - in my case 192.168.2.22, or the automatically detected IP from DynDNS, which I'm using to host my local computer - 87.177.87.11.

    I made a host name on DynDNS call: http://jelvis.dyndns.org
    Also, I went to Dynamic DNS configuration in my router configuration, and it asked me for my Domain Name - is this jelvis, jelvis.dydns, or what?

    I gave me a list of options:

    dydns.org
    no-IP.net
    etc.

    I chose dydns.org, which I think is right.
    It then asked me for my username...is this the username that I use for the DynDNS Website, along with my password?

    I order to configure a Dynamic DNS host, do I have to pay for a domain?

    I don't understand...partly because all of the language on my router configuration is in German.

    I attached a screenshot of what I've been doing, and please fill free to help me out with the text fields:
